You'd think SOMEONE at Graphitti Designs would've stopped that before it got sent to Diamond...

That really is pretty tasteless. Why on earth would they have thought that was a good idea for a caption? I wonder if they're catching any heat for that Garphitti or Diamond.

That's what you get for hiring the KKK's advertising agency. Sure they're cheaper, but is it really worth it?

All snark aside, that's offensive. Diamond needs to recall that issue of Previews.

Are you kidding? It was an accident. How do you take offense at an accident? Obviously none of the people responsible for the ad are espousing "white power" in the racial sense.

The only thing worse than this mistake in copy editing is the PC fanboy knee jerk reaction that will follow.

You'd think Wolverine just called Saberetooth a kike or something.

I wonder if the same nerds would be up in arms if they made one of those licensed Kevin Smith t-shirts with Hooper X and the words "Black Rage M*therf***er!"?

Sorry, I've missed something... how is that an accident, or a mistake in copy editing? Is there a typo there or something?
It's not an 'accident', just an incredibly bizarre play on words. It's comical and offensive at the same time... quite a feat.

Isn't it funny when people try to shoehorn every point of conversation to apply to their agendas?

No? Oh, okay.

Sooo... where was the joke supposed to be here? Is it technically a pun because the "S" shield is white and Superman is powerful? Is it a curious allusion to Kal-el's previously undisclosed Aryan Brotherhood past? This seems like less of a means to sell t-shirts and more of a way to say "not only am I a racist, but I'm a deeply confusing racist."

Have you ever seen any black Kryptonians?

Dubin: No, but a few years back there was a lettering mishap (or worse) where "killer" got turned into "kike."
